The reality TV star and celebrity progeny revealed the recent diagnosis via interviews with People and the U.K. magazine Hello!. Osbourne received the news last month, just a few weeks after the birth of his first child. “The timing was so bad,” the 26-year-old told Hello!. The magazine also interviewed Jack’s parents:
“I keep thinking: ‘What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant? I feel like it’s somehow my fault”, Sharon says, fighting back tears. Ozzy admits to feeling angered by the news that his youngest son has the condition.
“If it was me, you’d think: ‘Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him’, but Jack is such a good guy”, the rock singer says.
The silver lining to this lousy news is that someone of Jack Osbourne’s celebrity status has the potential to bring more awareness to multiple sclerosis, and maybe even raise funds for research. There’s still no known cure. An estimated 10,000 Americans are diagnosed with MS every year.
